Banderas' voice was first heard in the Shrek films as the scene-stealing Puss In Boots in "Shrek 2.”

In 2003, Banderas earned a Tony nomination for Best Actor in a Musical for his Broadway debut in the Roundabout Theater Company production of "Nine,” a musical inspired by Fellini's "8 ½.” He also received a Best Actor Drama Desk Award, Outer Critics Circle Award, Drama League Award and Theatre World Award. "Nine,” directed by David Leveaux, also starred Chita Rivera.

Born in Malaga, Spain, Banderas attended the School of Dramatic Arts in his hometown, and upon graduation he began his acting career working in a small theater company based there. He later moved to Madrid and became an ensemble member of the prestigious National Theater of Spain.
